A new paper in Oxford Open Climate Change, published by Oxford University Press, indicates that, while various models to measure the economic impact of reducing carbon emissions show low current economic benefits, after 2050, most scenarios show higher benefits than costs. These benefits are the largest in developing countries. Climate stabilization pathways reviewed by the […]

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published the next major assessment of climate policy, the report “Mitigating Climate Change“, as the third volume of the Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). Three Authors from the European Institute on Economics and the Environment were specifically contributing to these chapters: Chapter 1: Introduction and Framing, Valentina Bosetti Chapter […]

The key emerging mitigation and adaptation options can be used by local businesses to overcome the challenges of a transition to net-zero. This is quite challenging and not an easy path to follow without the right knowledge, instruments, and objectives. The main objective of this part of the LOCALISED project is to provide end-user solutions […]

The aim of the 2022 NAVIGATE-CIRED Summer School is to foster scientific exchanges between participants and faculty members about the issue of how to achieve a just and equitable transition to net zero emissions, and the modelling methods relevant to address the different dimensions to this broad issue. What are the short and medium term […]

A pan-institute Series of Webinars in Environmental and Energy Economics and Policy Environmental, energy, and ecological problems have grown faster than their solutions. Economists have an important role to play to address these issues by using the latest science, rigorous methods and innovative policy solutions.The SWEEEP webinar series aims to convene the academic community to […]

Accounting for air pollution impacts reduces climate mitigation costs without increasing inequality and increases global and regional welfare. A comprehensive integrated assessment modelling framework capturing the most critical interactions between air pollution, climate mitigation and the economy, in the study led by RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) just published in The Lancet […]

Net zero-emission pathways for reducing the risks for the environment and the economy of climate change An analysis led by RFF-CMCC European Institute on Economics and the Environment (EIEE) and just published on Nature Climate Change has explored the physical and macroeconomic impacts associated with mitigation pathways with different levels of temperature overshoot. Mitigation pathways […]

The first Climate Neutrality Forum (CNF) took place in 2021 bringing together over 1,000 academics and climate policy experts in a multi-hub hybrid in-person and virtual meeting held in Berlin, Oxford, and Milan, on 8-9 September 2021, followed by six weekly webinars in the lead up to 26th Conference of Parties meeting of the UN […]
